so much about this video is incredible. not just the absolute laser shot, but her smirk afterward, the casual toss of the other water balloon, the random dude on the right being like “uhhh we just gonna let this happen?” just A+ content here https://t.co/mxjDss2u1x

In reality, the video was filmed at the annual Stewart Manor Fourth of July parade on Long Island, and the man who was pelted by the balloon is a local government official of Nassau County. It is reportedly a tradition at the end of the parade for firemen, officials, and families in attendance to engage in a water balloon battle.
Bruce Blakeman, the Nassau County Executive who actually got his head wet by the balloon, posted the video to Twitter on Wednesday along with a lighthearted joke about the young girl’s incredible throw, “The Mets and Yankees could certainly use her!”
